About EMCS Industries
EMCS Industries Ltd was established in 1955 under the name Electrolytic Marine Corrosion Services (EMCS) Industries Ltd. and is the original inventor of the Cathelco System. This was renamed to Marelco™ in 1989.
The Marelco™ System is an electrolytic protection system developed and patented in 1961 in Canada and the United States by EMCS Industries Ltd. The original concept was the use of impressed current and aluminum sacrificial anodes to control corrosion of seawater piping systems. The system was found to be effective against scale formation as well.
Development and improvement of the original system over the years produced a combined anti-corrosion and anti-fouling system that is Lloyds and ABS approved.
In addition, EMCS Industries Ltd distributes a salt and fresh water growth anti-fouling system using the NOXX HYD™ solution that is growing in popularity worldwide in commercial applications such as Ferries and Cruise Ships. It is also used by the Canadian Coast Guard Service (CCGS).
EMCS Industries Ltd manufactures out of Victoria, BC Canada and in Genoa, Italy
